When a physical force damages the brain, it's known as a traumatic brain injury.

In the United States, it’s estimated that 1.5 million people will sustain a Traumatic Brain Injury each year.

Traumatic brain injury is caused by a sudden blow to the head; either the head strikes an object, or an object strikes the head. And what it does is, it causes the brain to actually shift within the skull. And that shifting motion causes injury to the brain, either by bruising or by tearing small blood vessels.

Both open and closed head injuries can cause severe brain damage, resulting in the need for immediate medical attention.
